Our governor is a robot from the future, we coexist with stars, and have an entire valley made of Silicon. Now it seems we have decided to become the first state to take solar power from space and use it for energy.
The plan is to transform solar energy harnessed by satellites into radio frequency transmittable energy, send it to Freso, California, and finally transfer it to PG&E's power grid. Amazing yes, but Fresno? Come on, Arnold. Check out more solar finds below.
